Introduction to analytics

Teams spend dozens of painful hours every quarter trying to reconcile and consolidate different roadmap views. That is why we created Aha! — to be the one tool that captures all of your structured and unstructured data in one place. Aha! lets you easily create and share reports with your various stakeholders. 

Everyone needs to be able to create custom tables and charts to share internally and present to customers. You also want to be able to analyze and report on what’s planned across your product, workspace or portfolio. Analytics reports in Aha! provide the reporting features and formats needed to analyze what’s happening and planned without spending hours of time duplicating data and manipulating spreadsheets. 

In the following article we've used a product management use case as an example. Depending on how you have implemented Aha! — or customized your terminology — you may use analytics reports differently. Regardless of your Aha! use case, analytics reports are an excellent way to gather insights from your data.

List reports

The Roadmaps > List view is your go-to tool for creating custom list reports based on over 100 different data objects. With the list table, you can add column headers for every Aha! data object. Then you can filter and sort the data to present different views of what you have going on across your product management environment.

Pivot reports

The Roadmaps > Pivot view is an incredibly powerful tool for taking all of the data in Aha! and creating in-depth analysis reports on what is going on. Similar to the Roadmaps > List view, the pivot view allows you to manipulate data from the over 100 different data objects stored in Aha! and then organize it all in a customizable pivot table.

Charts

The Roadmaps > Chart view is a beautiful way of communicating your product management information visually. The chart report helps you create your own custom visuals using any of the data elements that you manage in your Aha! account.

Capacity reports

Note: The capacity report is hidden until at least one workspace in your Aha! account enables capacity planning, then customizes their menu navigation to show the report. 

The Roadmaps > Capacity report is the perfect tool to help you visualize your team's capacity, by month, for the features you need to complete to achieve your strategic goals. First, enable capacity planning in your Aha! account, then use the capacity report to see who has availability to take on more work, who is overburdened, and what scheduled features conflict with each other — and might not be completed on time. The capacity report also highlights work that is unscheduled or unassigned, so you can ensure that there are no unexpected gaps in your roadmap.

Dependency reports

Note: The dependency report is hidden by default for new Aha! accounts. If you would like to enable them, you can do so by customizing your menu navigation.

Under Roadmaps > Dependency, you can visualize product relationships in a single, customizable view. This is separate from the dependency map, which shows dependencies for a single record, such as a feature. The dependency report allows you to view dependencies for multiple objects at once, such as all of the dependencies for every feature within an upcoming release.

Hierarchy reports

Note: The hierarchy report is hidden by default for new Aha! accounts. If you would like to enable them, you can do so by customizing your menu navigation.

The Roadmaps > Hierarchy view is the perfect way to compare the alignment of your product and product line strategy with the actual work that is planned. The hierarchy report makes it easy to visualize relationships across your goals, initiatives, releases, and features and to identify where you have gaps in delivering on your strategy.

Diagram reports

Note: The diagram report is hidden by default for new Aha! accounts. If you would like to enable them, you can do so by customizing your menu navigation.

Under Roadmaps > Diagram, you may visualize and share an unparalleled view of what you plan to develop and why.

Each layer of the chart represents a different set of data. Start with your products at the core and work out to your releases at the edges. You can zoom in and out and even filter the screen by your products, goals, initiatives, and releases to get the exact view that you want. When you have the view you want, save it and/or share it with key stakeholders by adding it to an Aha! presentation
